The bible says that the only proper place for sexual relations is within the marriage bond. Sexual relations before marriage is a sin. While it is important to keep in mind that Jehovah *** said this (not the Watchtower Society), it is also important to know the Watchtower Society’s stand on the matter. On March 1, 1998, Watchtower says: “The Bible condemns fornication, which it describes as the sexual intercourse of a man with a woman who is not his wife. (Lev. 20:10-12) This practice is even more abhorrent when it is indulged in by those having made a vow to remain ‘continent’ or celibate in order to serve ***.” (What can Jehovah witnesses do sexually?)
